"If you do what you need, you’re surviving. If you do what you want, you’re living." - Unknown
A friend once had ever said on her instagram that time is what we want most, but what we use worst. It is true. It is like saying "we will have a diet today" but we keep procrastinating in action until we realize that we just waste the time away. That time we will start to say "why didn't I start yesterday, last week, last month etc?".
You have your time now. So do I. The time to make a better life, to pursue the dream. Some of my college friends are in internship now. They choose to use their time to work while in a long time waiting to be replaced (we are bounded with a job contract, including me). As I watch them (I'm a socmed geek), some of them like their jobs, the rest just do that because of 'survival' mode. But the other friends choose to enjoy 'the holiday' and do things they like. I am the third type beyond all. I want to do what I love and I am willing to make it as my professional job.
Making that dream comes true, of course, is not easy. Doing that means I have to break the boundaries, be responsible of the risk, and be dare to fall if it fails. The other challenge also comes along from inside me. The freaking thoughts like "how if I can't make it?" or "I already try it once and it fails. Do I insanely want to make the same mistake twice?" are coming anytime. The most important thing to do is to ensure my parents so they can bless what I do.
Well, whatsoever. People break the limits (in a positive way) to make their dream comes true. People quit their precious job to make the awesome Georgetown Cupcake or to gain the title of Masterchef. It is risky and I am scared. But I will never know how to fly unless I'm brave enough to fall.
